an education and to go to school. >> what do you most admire about malala? [laughter] >> that is a difficult question. i think malala is an average girl but something which is -- [laughter] something extraordinary about her machine ever agrees with me. [laughter] she always jokes and she is very humorous. she had so many meetings on the stage. one special quality she has that she doesn't create a mistake again -- i mean, if she has made a mistake in life that once so she doesn't repeat her mistakes. she's very respectful to her teachers and her elders. >> i would ask it does start with you is when you were in a girls' school in pakistan, malala come attended an i have to announce what the view this passion for education because i think it is when you are the person who is on the bottom who want to rise but it is another when you are on the top and who want to share the privileges that you have as a man and a household. so where did you get your passion for the girls' education? >> basically i was born in a society where girls were ignored they are in the developing and poor countries. the wo
was going on on the ground. an urban city well-educated and libyans have exploded with access to soft loans over the internet. of the kids were getting shot as they tried to move around the cities so they began to use gugler and android sell funds to plot the locations of the snipers shooting at them. they would put pins in the map don't go down that street. the french start to see these pins appearing on buglers. so they flew reconnaissance mission so then they obviously started to bomb those positions when the school kids realize to free-market the french will baum it they went out to mark every position they could find and then whenever destroyed they would take them down and disappear from to coerce. -- google immerse a crowd source synchronized bombing a system that the pentagon spent billions of dollars the school kids are on the ground because they have access to connectivity that would have been impossible three of four years ago. as far as i can tell talking to kids on the ground those on the french task force at no time did they ever talk to each other it was self synchronized bas
for this era to the well-educated, highly professional other hand i found myself drinking of two or three glasses of wine before, five, six. i caught myself quickly and went to rehab. >> what was that like for you? that realization. it's probably the worst thing i've ever gone through in the sense that i was full of shame, deeply humiliated by my behavior i didn't do any of the above but i did blackout each night before i went to sleep, and it was something i said get a handle on it. i have learned so much to alcohol in my childhood. i knew that i was addicted. and i found myself going for help but it was compounding. what is confounding is. >> host: like as a kid mirror mere month on the wall i am my mother after all. do you think that what you have experienced is pretty common with other women? >> guest: the extreme behavior that i was involved in was in the spectrum and i became addicted. i think the larger group of women are not addictive it's only about two and a half percent depending on the country how many are actually alcoholic could but there are involved in risky behavior that
that the more professional, more educated you were, the more likely you are going to get into trouble with alcohol. in fact, you're one protector is a blue-collar job. that is scary because as women become more educated, as women are occupying the lion share of deceit and postsecondary institutions across north america and elsewhere, what's happening to us? why do we think we have two non-and vacate with alcohol? by this? it's more than just celebration. something is going really wrong. so that feminize drinking culture is alive and well. i just want to put up a hand in say, let's have a hard look at what's going on and know your personal vulnerabilities. i should've known with two alcoholic parents that i was pretty vulnerable. now whether you're vulnerable to breast cancer. you should really know what you're putting in your throat and take a hard look, just like with everything else. are you safe? are you healthy? is it okay for you? if it is, wonderful. >> host: very good, very good. i do like the bottle print. >> guest: they did a wonderful job. >> host: they did, they did. well,
hungry and going to school trying to get an education hungry. some of that is alleviated. we have a school lunch, school breakfast program that is functional, put the lot of people who would otherwise be hungry into some kind of food security. here is a problem, doesn't exist in the summers, there has been a lot in the literature about the education value of the summer when kids regress education leave. the other thing that happens in the summer is poor kids get hungry. a lot of localities recognize that and created these institutions that have a horrible sounding name, some are feeding programs, places where low-income kids can go to get meals, parks, community centers, sometimes properly funded, sometimes the federal government steps in with money. a couple years ago the federal government stepped in to st. louis with a pilot program to send 10,000 low-income kids who would otherwise go hungry in the summer, here was the response on the radio. after this program, it, quote, created surface people who woer never have a work ethic paula 0 we call him a schoolyard bully. he is a gu
'm well-educated, highly professional woman, mother and found myself drinking not two glasses of wine, not three glasses of wine, but foreign fighters xma. i slipped into some bad behavior. caught myself quickly and went to rehab. post goes to when not, what was that like for you then, that realization? if you can maybe talk about that. >> guest: it was probably the worst thing i've ever gone through. i was full of shame. i was deeply humiliated by my behavior. i didn't miss work. i didn't do any of the about death. i did lack out. each night before i went to sleep. and it was something that i set out a handle on it. i had a favorite cousin who was killed by drunk driver. and i thought of us so much to alcohol my childhood. now my cousin died, i'll just quit. and i couldn't. i knew i was addicted and found myself going for help. it was confounding. and also, my behavior didn't look like my mother's. so i thought it can't possibly be an alcoholic. >> host: there is an adage that i learned as a kid. it's kind of like mirror mirror on the wall, i am my mother after all. >> guest: ray, ra

rationale in many quarters, particularly higher education. the diversity rationale says we want to engage in special efforts to bring in people from all walks of life, all sectors, all regions, all ideological dispositions, all races. the reason why we want this is we believe that on our campuses there will be richer learning. there will be more learning, better learning, deeper learning takes place through the clash of perspective. and, you know, students will learn from one another. so the diversity rationale for affirmative action. that's some of the why affirmative action rose in the late '60s, early '70s but in these are some of the reasons that have been set for for affirmative action. okay. why is a controversial? affirmative action like all policies has cost. it has costs. what are some of those costs? there's a bunch just like there's a wide range of justifications, rationale, for affirmative action. there's also an array of costs. i'll mention a couple. let me start off with one, stigma. it's an important one because there some people, i think he neatly of the most vociferous cr
voluntarily give everything? how to educate and to whom i am not sure people are so aware how much misinformation with a single individual they could but most of the information is inaccurate. even with the database segregators even roberta who live todd a street 50 years ago is in l.a. you come up with the aggregate to show conviction said failure to appear for the traffic violation. i don't think people realize the information that they have to try to clear there name. >> the first question is important it is not just brazil but china and every rare but the recognition that our multinational corporations are protected by the nation state and they may be a multinational and other ways but there is a parochial concern and a recognition of other areas of control a end to independence to those places to be very important and if these companies want to retain their position they will have to shape up to take on the own government. we are aid normal nation of. we don't have to control everything it takes more room to become more sensible the concerns wages, it's jobs, and we may find t
for some people and for some black people who had developed the skills and gone in education, so when these artificial race barriers were taken from them, they were in a position to march right forward. but that did not help so much the many millions of black people who had really been debilitated by the jim crow segregation and what about the black people because of this, that they did not get a good education or were deprived of opportunities. even when the racist barriers went down, let's hypothesize that for a moment. but because they hant. but because they have been deprived of opportunity in the past, they are nonetheless at a tremendous disadvantage in competitions to move forward in american life and people said that that is not fair. that in a sense if we do not provide a helping hand to those people, we are permitting and we are simply -- we are committing debilitating effects of racist treatment in the past to live on and we are allowing a continuation and a perpetuation of past racial mistreatment that is unjust. and that is the effort and desire to overcome the effects, t
for education including an early education initiative. the republican budget in the house results in the cutting 20% below sequester levels to that part of the budget that funds education. the office tells us the act cuts to defense and priorities result in 800,000 american fewer jobs by this time next year. we know there's smarter ways to achieve deficit reduction without economic harm. in the house, there's a balanced mix of cuts to wasteful spending and cuts to unproductive special interest tax breaks. we've been denied the opportunity to vote on that plan. finally, this committee should continue our work to reduce our long term deaf fits and shrink the debt. over the last few years, we cut the deficit by over 2 #.7 trillion excluding the sequester. three quarters of the savings come from budget cuts, one quarter from revenue. if you factor in the additional trillion dollars in savings resulting from slower than expected health care costs, which are due in part to changes in the affordable care act, the ratio of cuts to revenue is more than 4-to-1. still, we can and should do more, but there
in education and the field of federal indian law. over the years i have very much valued my opportunity to work with the esteemed professor here in various matters. the professor bob clinton and over year bob miller, professor miller, of course professor kevin goldberg currently at the smithsonian's, patti ferguson bonnie as well as carl and i just have to commend the school for such an all-star lineup of indian law professors, part of the faculty of his meeting ranking law school and i'm so glad to be here. i've been inspired by the scholarship, the innovation and the leadership provided by this program here at the university. therefore, i personally feel it's very fitting to present my first law school book collector in support of my new book "in the light of justice" here at this small school. this book is fresh off the press released last month in all august and we have done a domestic book launching the event in june and to mexico as well as an international book launching the event in feg in the south pacific. i am now on a national book lecture tour in support of this book beginning righ
to cope with that. she was better educated most had grabher school education with the hitler youth for girls with secretarial trading work to help out on farms or restaurants or working class but of the other hand in ned got her law degree in the 30's which was pretty unusual. and she decided which she was called upon to do her patriotic duty that she played joy in the red cross that during the first world war had the organization that attracted upper-class women associates said i will go to the red cross. low and behold she did not have medical trading but was pulled out because they immediately noticed she was cultured and said we will set up the leadership the special soldiers' homes in the we are area of the occupied territory. this is from her personal album. soldiers go to a friend then returning can have stopovers with german cookies in to interact with nice german women to relax and recreates so there were 1200 german women like her sent to the east to manage the soldier holmes in she was said to to a town that had a population of about 9,000 jews. shortly before she went o
the last for a lot of educators and medicine still try to teach about diversity training this is a battle we have already won in california. it is fabulous that what they'd need is a direction and i think of values of what is really important. they kind of note that the health care isn't a commodity. they know that it has to be personal but even though there is a lot of melting it nobody demonstrates that. that is what i try to do for them as physically teaching them something to tell them what a wonderful profession medicine is and hopefully we can keep it that way. >> thank you for the message that medicine is personal but also not personalized. kidney talk more about those differences. >> that is the fun question. a number of you there are so many linguist personalize is the opposite of personal that means it is pretending to be personal he know when you get the wonderful hand written and throw away don't smile -- to of mail? it is personalized it is not personal it is the opposite but truth is lies personalized is not personal when the the other things that is pernicious is a virtual
're consulting with consumer groups to determine how best to educate consumers with understandable information about how the new rules will affect them. as we become aware of critical operational, or critical rules. we have addressed them. m writing through amendment through the official intermentation and the rules themselves. but issued various amendment over the course of the year with a single aim in mind. to ensure the effectivenesses of the rule for making it easier for industry to comply. by addressing and classifying we reduced the need for individual institutions to spend time reaching their own uncertain judgment on these matters. we understand that even though these becial amendments have responded to your request to remove obstacles to implementation they required you to make further adjustment. we do not believe the implementation project should slow the readiness process. congress established this specific deadline for the effective date of the rule that directed us to write and we set the effective date t
, potentially you're just not able to find a good-paying full-time job, perhaps you didn't receive the education that others have received, perhaps you have got some disability, you're -- you would go under this plan on medicare -- i mean on medicaid, and then everyone in between, the lowest income and the age of 65 is in a private health care system, which is a market-based system, competition driving prices down. the idea would be that there would be 20, 30, 40 health care plans in every state offered. people can choose what they want with a minimum, bronze, silver, gold plan with lots of choice. that is the promise, that is the hope, that is the idea, and the great promise of this is that if you have cancer, you can't be dropped. if you have diabetes, you can't be turned away. so when everyone is covered, the risk has spread, the price comes down and the free market operates. now, you would never know that based on the criticism that you hear on television and radio all day long, but that's the truth. one of the important components of that bill that many of us talked about was the fact that
is whoever wants to answer my brought commentary or at least educate me in a different lesson, i'd love to have it. >> in january 1963, the communists did something they hadn't done before. they stayed and they fought and as a result, five americans were shut down. we americans were killed. kennedy sees us on the front pages of the times and says what is going on here, i thought we were winning this war? over the course of the next several months, in fact, beginning january and february, he will hear varying reports from white house officials, state department officials and military officials. giving really contradictory evidence about the state of the military campaign in vietnam. >> john foster dulles had recently died in the super air powered in chantilly, virginia was being built. the president announced he would be named dulles airport. for a while, when kennedy took over, he didn't want to name it after a crusty old warrior. there is pushback and paella decision was made to name it after dulles. you can still see the film clip of kennedy opening the airport with eisenhower thayer,
, the unbelievable cause from a civic education perspective, benefits, are there. they are tremendous. they are undeniable. but with these nine they might come to a different conclusion. semi-final thing to say is the good news here is i do think this is generational, and i think it is inevitable fedecamaras will be in the supreme court. that is my generation, we're used to having cameras all the time. the default is we're being recorded. we are using phones that have cameras and cameras everywhere taking pictures of us, and with the rise of google glass, we will always be on camera. so the supreme court will look extremely idiosyncratic to be the one place in which it's a camera freeze him. so i shut the chief justice's view that the court should give up with the times. i think that's and bravely going to happen and it's a question of the person i was on the court and who is comfortable and who is not. >> having watched you argue on the supreme court i don't think you have to worry about her foibles being broadcast on television. i can't remember any. this is one place where the cour
among educated people. if you have much idea why europe exploded, though they may know that a big league with an extravagant mustache got shot. the most widely held belief is that the conflict was simply a guessing mistake for which all the european powers share blame, it's folly compounded by the british incompetence of military commanders. this is what i would characterize as the poets greuel, first articulated by the likes of robert graves amid the modern blood they felt that no cause could be worth the slaughter. today some brave people and maybe also saw americans feel almost embarrassed that we finished up on the witness -- winning side, yet my own opinion is somewhat different. while the war was assuredly a colossal tragedy, there was a cause a stake. certainly, britain could not possibly have remained neutral, while germany secured e-germany over the continent. a german victory in world war -- world war i will simply have created something like the european union half a century earlier. that we, the british, not to mention the united states could have remained unbloodied by stand
and back and forth. i appreciate it. i thank you for it. i would have had a great education, though, if you had kept me until the end, and i want to thank you and the ranking member for your leadership. we have appreciated it and admired it in our chamber, and also chairwoman stabenow for your effort and sustained effort in getting us to this point. i feel privileged as others have said to be part of the farm bill conference committee and join those who said this is the way we should should be doing our wn congress. this is the way we are going to be able to regain the confidence of the american people, not with the rock throwing and brick throughing and the screaming, but working together in a bipartisan, bicameral way, and that is the expectation of our farmers and ranchers. the farmers and ranchers in rural communities driving colorado's $40 billion agricultural economy, it is critical that we work through our differences to complete this process. mr. chairman, if i could sum up what i heard in the nearly 0 # listens sessions we've had all across colorado on this topic, the message is v
in the nation, one of the top three states in the nation. never cut back any education, never laid any teachers off, never cut back on any of our programs for our children, our seniors. we expanded programs for people in need because we had ourself financially strong. i come here, my number one goal, fix the finances, fix the finances. raising debts don't fix debts. sooner or later someone has to fix the debt. and that's what i'm hire. that's what i hope to be able to achieve. i'm working very hard across the aisle, talking to everybody, is there a way we can move forward and fix our debt? i really became, really engrossed in the bowles-simpson approach t was only thing i saw that was bipartisan. one of the first things i saw when i got here, bipartisan, stayed bipartisan and grew bipartisan and we couldn't get a vote. we were three votes short out of that committee. there was 11 people on it. they needed 14. they got 11 votes. five republicans and six democrats. when is the last time we had six and five agreed on a financial direction for our country? and couldn't get a vote on the floor. that
, and the council on foreign relations working on a range of economics and education issues. he is the co-author of a book on girls education and an author of the pro-growth progressive and economic strategy for shared prosperity. gene graduated from the university of minnesota and yale law school and attended wharton business school. is a native of ann arbor, michigan, and will be joining his them in california at the end of this year. when he finishes his remarks will move over here for two and a. thank you very much. gene? >> well, thank you very much for having us here today. i want to thank jim doyle very much, not just for today but for all the leadership of business forward, all the consultations, even the recent meeting with your small business advisory committee as we went into this recent round of budget discussions. so again, i really want to thank you and business forward for the leadership that you've shown, and the desire to look beyond your own particular situation to the larger economic issue that we face as a country, and understanding that that affects all of us. so agai
the world. in both innovation and education because of the nature of our universities, the structure, the number, and the openness with which they operate. and i believe also people will have access here because we will continue to work hard to make sure that we have the most qualified workers and one of the largest consumer markets in the world. again, i say, i don't say any of this with one touch of arrogance. i say it because that's -- that goodness for america's also in fact good news for the world. and it's good news for you and your businesses. and you know the importance of the american economy in terms of driving china's economy and other economies in the world, and their imports now to driving other economies in their regions and elsewhere. and it's a principle reason why i believe you ought to invest here. is why president obama is making attracting job creating investment a top priority at a level unlike any before. so you are sitting here this morning, we believe, in the heart of the most open economy in the world hear the united states already is the world's largest reci
and copyright law as a way to accommodate the democratic values of literature and education. and piracy was more than an enabling condition of legitimate publishing and it was also a necessary condition of literary culture throughout much of this century we were a net importer and british books were eagerly sought by an increasingly literate populace. according to david saunders, the first catalogue of harpers contained 234 titles of which 90% were english and prior to the civil war, approximately 50% of all fiction bestsellers were unauthorized foreign works. and the report of the british royal commission on copyrights worries that they have cheap rates of 40 million, perhaps most active ones in the world. and unauthorized reprinting can be viewed as a vast free rider problem or maybe in easy rider in the sense that there were some cost associated. but a lot of overhead was removed. but why do the authors continue to write and publish if the incentives were removed. in part because copyright laws of their own country allow them to capture the domestic benefits of their labor. they might hope fo
public and private investment in education r&d and infrastructure. over the last three years we've made real strides in reducing our deficit. we saved more than $12.5 billion. that's been unbalanced. about 70% has been from spending cut. 30% from revenue. we need to do more but we have do it, i believe, in a balanced way. we've heard from senators about the need to modernize the tax code and move toward real tax reform. while the committee can't get it done. we can move in that direction in a substantial way. making a modest cut of only 5% of the trillion dollars a year we spend through the tax code would make huge dent in the deficit. lastly, we have to don't make some reduction in direct spending. although i know that's the area taken the hardest hit. i'll insist on doing in a way that put a circle of production around around the most vulnerable and honoring our promises to seniors, veterans, and about to retirement to protect them from cuts. chairman rhode island i know, chairman muir ray. i'm glad we have come together. we need focus not on the area of disagreement but priority we s
, educate, engage on subject matters that we think are very important. they can be money in politics, climate change, the state of politics, the influence of power in america, and, like i said, the early mission was, you know, we don't -- we are reporting driven. as you look behind me, i don't know what you can see out there, but we have ten reporters in the bureau alone. we have reporters in other places as well, and, you know, we don't focus on commentary. we don't focus on a lot of local analysis. we do some of that, but mainly we focus on stories we find important, things that are in the news and report them out in a way that is unique and different that's what's happening in the rest of the media, or they can be different but important that are not getting the attention that we believe they should be getting. >> host: what do you think the status of investigative journalism is today for magazines? too many magazines that focus on opinion writing? >> guest: well, i think there's a lot less investigative reporting. i use that praise not in a pa -- pejorative way. the news room and
the excellence in the u.s. higher education how that has always helped us and we train more and better engineers but those days are ending. and so, our natural design advantages i think are going to be harder to come by going forward. we need those things so that we are not starting with a ten to 20% cost disadvantage. >> we talked about this in the european context it is closer to fruition. >> we have a huge business in asia growing that's probably the single largest opportunity over the next decade or so. we intend to lead that market like we do in so many others. but again i come back to the point that it's likely that a lot of those countries -- a number of those will give agreements with or without us if we don't get tpp done and we will be looking at a market that we ought to compete with. there's another 1i will move to africa because i'm kind of passionate about this. we watched the chinese really take over africa. they come in with their own financing and engineering, sometimes their own workers to take over minerals come extraction, hydroelectric power across africa. and i feel we can
and the senate we have robust beginning farmer and rancher legislation that focuses on education and building the capacity for the future. it also does some smart things to have set asides in some of these programs to make sure a new person on the land can access those things. i would certainly encourage us to come together. we're very close on that. keep those programs in there. once again, that builds our capacity for the future. in looking at capacity for the future, the land is our truly great resource. our producers are some of the best stewards of the land. but just like in all other things, we need to give them the tools they need to preserve that land. we need to make sure that conservation title is fully funded and we look visionary on those working lands to make sure we're not making the choices for those producers. they have the right to make the choice that works best for them. but make it both economically smart and people have proven they will take advantage of that. i would like to compliment my colleague from south dakota, who has worked with us on sod saver legislation that i
a pro-growth budget that we invest in education and research and modern roads and bridges and transit systems. that's what we need for our country. i want to share with my colleagues what i've been doing in my own state of maryland. because i am very optimistic about america's ability to compete if we stop these self-inflicted crises. i've had this made in maryland tour i've been doing thrut the state of maryland where i visited many small businesses biz in in my state. i give credit to my colleague in the house, congressman hoyer whose saying make it in america has caught on. so i took my friend, congressman hoyer's suggestion and i went around maryland to meet with different companies in our state and i must tell you maryland businesses are the best in the world. the best in the world. i know i'm a little biased about maryland but they're the best on innovation and creativity. let me give you a few examples that may not be self-evident like the paul reed smith guitar factory. that guitar factory is located on the eastern shore of maryland. and in a very little community, a small com
we're going to invest in education and r&d at home and insure that the united states can compete and win in this highly competitive global marketplace. you and i know we can do that, but we have to make this a priority at a time of enormous pressure to drastically cut government spending. .. >> expected our ability to promote principles and values that our veterans sacrificed for. it didn't get shut of the statue of liberty, it temporarily closed the doors to refugees and students who are seeking visas to learn here and to contribute to our economy. they shut down delayed security aid to israel, one of our closest allies, obviously, and a critical democracy in a region that's undergoing tremendous upheaval. why would an would in common sey would you want to do that? a shutdown set hard-working public servants own, including officials whose job is to enforce the sanctions against iran, sanctions that actually helped to create the pressure that brought us to this moment of cautious possibility in the region. that shut down furloughed for norvell -- nobel laureates who were working
plants, were educated and trained in the west, particularly in the united states. and that's the case now. hollyhock bar so hockey he was presently -- on akbar, was head of the atomic energy for iran is an mit graduate, ph.d, and his subject is the physics of nuclear power plants. the present leadership under president rouhani is very familiar with the issues that i just related. and including the detailed knowledge of the programs that iran has embarked on over the 50 years that may have -- that they have pursued nuclear energy research and development. and their position, their declaratory position is that we have no interest in nuclear weapons, although we are surrounded by nuclear weapons, although we can build a nuclear weapons but we can only build a few, and if we built them, strategically we would become even more vulnerable as a target for retaliation. so this is the declaratory policy. this is the a strategic policy. and this is buttressed by an ethical and religious view that many iranians hold, that the use of weapons of mass destruction is forbidden by the teachings of islam.
